Storage of Information. Our Site employs browser cookies to store users’ preferences and record session information. A cookie is a small data file that is stored by your browser on your hard drive. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that this website uses to track the pages you’ve visited, but the only Personal Information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. We may use cookies to track user traffic patterns. We do this in order to determine the usefulness of the information we supply to you and other users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information. We do not correlate this information with data about individual users, nor do we share this information or sell it to any third party. If you prefer not to receive cookies through this website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser. However, doing so may hinder your ability to access, use or navigate portions of this website.

We reserve the right to disclose information about you, including data on which pages you have visited, to third parties if we feel it is necessary to protect the security of our systems, websites, business, users or others.
